Take a walk. Go outside and approach your house the way a visitor would. What is the first thing you notice? Are there any eyesores available? Patches of brown grass? Shoddy paint job? Taking a moment to re-examine your home from the viewpoint of a visitor can help you see things you might of missed as you run in and out all day long.
Landscaping. You don’t need to re-haul your entire gardening strategy to get some great curb appeal. Adding some brightly colored flowers or trimming and weeding out your garden beds periodically can work wonders. For a polished finishing touch, add a layer of mulch to finish out garden spaces.
Your front door. A freshly painted door can make a great welcoming sight- some choose bright contrasting colors, others go for the same colors as the rest of the house. Adding potted plants, or a table and chairs is a great way to further add a welcoming touch to your front door.
Don’t forget the little things. Although not the most obvious thing, number and lighting can make a big difference. House numbers are easily seen with dark numbers on a light background. Make sure there is also enough light to read the numbers comfortably from the road.
